- Have class members research how immigrants into Turkey impact the current EU/Turkey debate
- Establish a protocol for a safe, respectful discussion of controversial issues
- The four-page packet includes an overview of the lesson, links to required maps, reference materials, and handouts, discussion questions, and activities
- Considerable research time would be required for class members to conduct an informed debate
